In The Axe and the Icon, James H. Billington wrote:Perhaps there was an unconscious realization of this unreality in Elizabeth's almost compulsive fondness for masquerades. Things were not what they seemed in the Elizabethan court. Cryptic maxim, fables, and acrostics had already established themselves at the Tsar's court; and ever since 1735 there had been a special chair of allegory in the Academy of Sciences. Elizabeth's coronation had been celebrated by to examples of allegorical ballet, her favorite form of theatrical entertainment. Increasingly during her reign, she sponsored not only masked balls of various sorts by a particular type known as a "metamorphosis" wherein men came disguised as women and vice versa.

Of course it does! I think I spend more time wearing my pseudo-names than my "real" one...

I think Tess Testosterone can beat up Eva Destruction.

Am I doing this right. We are supposed to carry bricks in our evening bags so we can hit cops on the head during riots, right?

I always liked Dick Tracy or Speed Racer.

Hippy Dippy Superman would be fun...think of how he's let himself go.

I guess with all the drama going on over in the tickets threads, things are on hold for a bit... :(

So apparently we're starting the entertainment section of the program a little early. :lol:

Damn, those are great! Glad we'll be having such a big group of celebrities camping in our midst. Hope the extra security doesn't effect the event too badly.
Will they have to get their tickets through the lottery or will there be some sort of special dispensation for them?

I'm Madam Ovary or Sherripop Pie. I guess I could take votes, but I'm leaning towards Sherripop Pie 8)
When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.

Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man - Token

Getting overly dramatic about the ticket sale process is so 2012. - Maladroit

tamarakay - I'm behind Sherripop Pie all the way! :D

jkisha - I'm afraid no one is going to get around the lottery :? but on the bright side, not to worry about the security forces. The Swish Embassy is surrounded by M.A.S.H. 4207th, Apokiliptika, and the dreaded PlayaWaste Raiders...and I hear they're going to be pretty damned glam, too! :lol:

Here are a few more sign-ups:

...unless you mean Are we going to be making frappes out of human sexual organs and then....umm...no.

You might want to try across the street for that - I have no idea of the level of depravity the Raiders are capable of (mostly because I have never played Fallout. Seriously I have no idea... :lol: ).

It's not *all* about you.
You ought to try thinking about someone else.
Like us.
And we're having a party.
So get off your throne.
Come join us.
It's not all that fucking difficult."
